in thread bag of questions...

Thanks for the comments =)
I do fully realize that I am reinventing the wheel with this script... but after about 4 years of mostly Java and c++ coding, I thought I needed to excercise my perl skills with a couple of small problems... this being one of them =)
I have had only minor experience with rsync, and as far as i know it's unix only... the script i am writing, is meant to run on a w2k file server...

    Win2K? I feel for you, believe me I do...

    Anyways, rsync has been ported. So play around with this wheel for practice (I certainly have done that plenty! :-) but I still recommend that you try rsync for the real job.

      Win2K? I feel for you, believe me I do...
      he he... no need to! I work in an ad agency, the script is for backing up the work of the "new media designers" =), so that they won't bother the sysadmin or me, when they need that file from yesterday which they just destroyed...
      My plans are to make the script only take an image when there has been changes, and start creating zips for images older than a week...
      For my own work, i have a notebook running w2k, an SGI indy running irix, a Powermac running linux and finally a Compaq iPaq pocketpc running linux (mostly for fun)
      Basicly i get to use what ever tools i wish on what ever platform i wish to do my job...

      Anyways.. I will take a look at rsync, looks like it might be a neat tool for file server maintenance....
